This growth leads to high-quality jobs, which in turn leads to economic vitality for the region. We are here specifically to match entrepreneurs, startups and companies hungry for growth with what they need to get to the next level.

Help Businesses Grow

Business incubators nurture the development of entrepreneurial companies, helping them survive and grow during the start-up period, when they are most vulnerable. These programs provide their client companies with business support services and resources tailored to young firms. The most common goals of incubation programs are creating jobs in a community, enhancing a community’s entrepreneurial climate, retaining businesses in a community, building or accelerating growth in a local industry, and diversifying local economies.

Incubators help client companies secure capital in a number of ways:

  • Managing in-house and revolving loan and microloan funds
  • Connecting companies with angel investors (high-net-worth individual investors)
  • Working with companies to perfect venture capital presentations and connecting them to venture capitalists
  • Assisting companies in applying for loans
